About CAEPA Cameroon
Feb 17, 2020
Community Agricultural and Environmental Protection Association (CAEPA) Cameroon was founded by a group of women seeking to improve their agricultural production systems by making them environmentally friendly and sustainable. Later they realized the linkage between natural resource rights, and climate and environmental justice. They also realised there was a connection between land degradation, poverty and violence against women, and HIV and AIDS. They included fighting against violence in the programs. Since 2009, its activities have expanded to address issues of natural resource rights, climate and environmental justice, and their connection to land degradation, poverty and violence against women/girls and HIV and AIDS.
CAEPA Cameroon was created in 2009 and legalized in 2011 under Cameroon Law No. 90-53 of 19/12/90 related to Associations.
CAEPA Cameroon is headquartered in Bamenda, North-West Region of Cameroon.
The organization is expanding its programs to cover the South West regions-SWR (Fako, Meme, Manyu, Ndian) and North West regions-NWR (Momo, Mezam, Boyo, Ngoh-ketunjia) of Cameroon
